Looking to work, sail, paid or unpaid
I spent 9 months helping fix a wooden gaff rigged ketch. During that time I did a lot of ropework, rigging, electrical wiring, electronic and navigation system set-up, hydraulic and plumbing fixes. I also sailed with the boat around the fjord and taught new crew. You can see the reference from the captain on my profile.
I upgraded a canoe into a shunting sailing canoe with a fiberglass/foam/epoxy outrigger in the style of oceania, rigged it with a hand-sewn oceanic lateen sail and sailed it around the delta of Ebro. Shunting canoes do not tack or jibe, they shunt, which means the whole sail swings around. On my canoe the mast was at an angle that changed every shunt, there was no standing rigging, shrouds and stays were running rigging.
I am looking for an opportunity to work. Whether it is for pay or just room and board.
